This chapter presents the text of George Gershwin's essay titled Does Jazz Belong to Art?, which was published in the July 1926 issue of Singing magazine. In this essay, Gershwin suggests that the study and practice of jazz has a very important contribution to make toward the complete training of any modern disciple of the musical art. He believed that jazz can help music students simplify and amplify their repertoire and that jazz is America's greatest contribution to the musical art.
